Startup news site, TechRound, is delighted to announce the launch of a new Youtube series called The Elevator Pitch, in collaboration with WeWork, a leading, global, flexible workspace provider.
The Elevator Pitch is a famous concept and has often been used in business schools to get students to present their ideas. Typically, students would have to pitch their business idea in 30 seconds – as if they stumbled into an elevator with a powerful CEO or investor that they were eager to impress and get on board with.
Five exciting startup founders were filmed earlier this year at WeWork Aviation House, right by Holborn underground station in London’s Covent Garden.
Three of the participants are members of WeWork Growth Campus, a £15 million initiative launched in 2021, offering its members subsidised workspace and access to its broad member networking – supporting opportunities to grow their business with the aim of boosting the UK’s entrepreneurial ecosystem after the disruption of the last 2+ years.
Mathieu Proust, General Manager, WeWork UK, Ireland & Emerging Markets, said: “It’s great to learn more about these inspiring startups, including members of our own WeWork Growth Campus initiative. Challenging times often spark innovative business ideas and solutions, and we’re pleased to have supported many entrepreneurs as they scaled up their companies with our flexible workspaces and member network.”
